ALERT!!! New Short Posts Series: 365 THINGS YOUTH: A List of Things Young People Need to be Doing in this Economy to Survive and Thrive… #1 and #2

365 Things Young is a series of short posts dedicated to young people.

It is a list of things young people around the world need to be able to do, so to survive and thrive in these new economies: To incite in themselves skills, intelligence (for Industrial Revolutions), innovation, creativity and productivity.  It is written either by me, Tiisetso Maloma, or by a named guest contributor. Sometimes the posts rant, and sometimes they are soft.

Here goes the first one.

#1. You have to Google shit you want to learn yourself

You cannot be asking people how to create a CV, a business plan, an email account, etc.

We are no longer in that age.

Google how it’s done, and do it yourself.

#2. You need to have an email address, and you need to know how to send a proper email

Don’t be caught saying:

  • “I do not have an email address.”
  • “I haven’t checked my emails in a while.”

You have to:

  • Check your emails 3 times a day: At least in the morning, afternoon and at 4 PM – if not later.
  • An email has a heading and body.
  • No fucken shorthand typing.
  • And use proper grammar. Use Grammarly. Do not ask what it is. Find out for yourself. 
  • Oh, and an email address has to be clean: maloma7@gmail.co.za is better than maloma1987554@gmail.com.
